    Colorado!
    I have ordered the Polish from Ideal before, knowing that I was looking for pet quality, NOT SQ.

    The lacing is poor on the golden laced and buff laced and the WCBP have some dark feathers in the white crests. The sultan was beautiful and had all of the correct features, but I am not a poultry judge!

    That being said, the birds were friendly and healthy (until they got eaten by a fox).

    Sorry guess I should have posted a pic or something.
    She doesn't like to hold still for pics so I have to take them when I can.

    She competed with 4 or 5 other Polish

    What a gorgeous bird! I think the sunlight truly lets you see her coloring. I may go to them for a few Polish myself!

    Just got 2 pairs of polish today that came from ideal. They are pet quality. I have a pair of w.c. black and a pair of red crested red. The w.c. black rooster has a small beard,never seen a hatchery w.c. black polish that was bearded. I do believe there is some polish breeders out there who may be working on bearded w.c. black polish. If you want to go with a hatchery,sandhill preservation center has the best buff laced polish that I have seen in a hatchery polish.
